Just like Thomas, the Gladers don't know why or how they got to the Glade. All they know is that every morning the stone doors to the maze that surrounds them have opened. Every night they've closed tight. And every 30 days a new boy has been delivered in the lift.
Thomas was expected. But the next day, a girl is sent up - the first girl to ever arrive in the Glade. And more surprising yet is the message she delivers.
Thomas might be more important than he could ever guess. If only he could unlock the dark secrets buried within his mind.

Nearly flawless performance. Very well done with the different voices of the characters except for Theresa's voice; she sounded like a drag queen, but maybe that was as good as it gets when a guy attempts a girl's voice?
I really enjoyed the writers style the way they explained stuff in detail without making it so drawn out and wordy you would get bored.
enjoyed the different personalities
I liked them all but was pretty bummed when one character in particular died I had hoped it would have spared him but it made for a compelling scene when the character died!
it continued on at a good clip and I found I would lose track of time because I got so inthralled in what was happening
looking for next book right now.
I love the guy who reads this so much expression and I really needed to listen to this book because I needed to take an at test it was awesome
This is a good book for those who enjoyed the TV series, "Lost." Myself I need more info on the plot. More why. My wife has finished the series. Even though she won't tell me anything, it doesn't sound like a happy ending. I don't like that.
The Maze Runner is along the lines of Hunger Games and Divergent. Good Young Adult book with generally good characters. I didn't like that there wasn't a lot of diversity to the group of kids both gender and racial diveristy are missing. I hope the second book proves to be more diverse.
So glad I found the series didn't know it would be so good can't wait to listen to book two!
Horse trainer by day, super hero by night, book lover all the time.
Fast paced adventure. There is always something new to mess with plans
Hmmm... Possible the Golden Compass due to humanity's salvation being put on the shoulders of a child
Near the beginning, when we first see Thomas in the glade. Despite the situation, the Gladers have managed to create a well functioning society. There's something beautiful about that.
I think they already did...This book is one WICKED ride.
The story is great and although I recommend it, there are a few things I'd change (no spoilers here though ;)
